§ 228.62. Leakage radiation outside the patient area for new equipment.
(a) The absorbed dose due to leakage radiation except in the area specified in § 228.61(a)(1) (relating to leakage radiation to the patient area) when measured at any point 1 meter from the path of the charged particles, before the charged particles strike the target or window, may not exceed 0.1% for X-ray leakage nor 0.5% for neutron leakage of the maximum absorbed dose of the unattenuated useful beam measured at the point of intersection of the central axis of the beam and the circular plane specified in § 228.61(a)(1).
(b) The licensee shall determine or obtain from the manufacturer, the actual leakage radiation existing at the positions specified in subsection (a) for specified operating conditions. Radiation measurements, including neutrons, shall be averaged over an area up to but not exceeding 200 square centimeters.
The provisions of this § 228.62 adopted October 2, 1998, effective October 3, 1998, 28 Pa.B. 4894.
